After reading all the great reviews on different sites, my partner and I decided to visit this new restaurant.
What a brilliant choice it was too. Had the lunch special which includes a free soup. We shared a portion of Mien Tay (pork and prawn) spring rolls served with fresh salad, herbs and dip followed by rice vermicelli with grilled pork and rice vermicelli with grilled goat. Both pork and goat was tender and well flavoured.
Had to travel from neighbouring Balham but well worth it. Don't have to travel all the way to Purley Way for An Nam (also good Vietnamese), as Mien Tay is better, closer & friendlier. Prices are also more reasonable. Our lunch for food only came to £14.00. Definitely visiting for lunch and for the evening a la carte menu soon
Also noticed on the window they had a sign for BYO (not sure for how long so check with the restaurant) and a photo of international Hong Kong actor Chow Yun Fat visiting their Shoreditch branch.
It's such a shame we had to wait for so long for a great Vietnamese to open this side of the river but that long wait is finally over.
